My Brother, Gone Too Soon

Tanner, we will miss you so much.
We all love you and wish you could come back.

Oh, brother of mine,
Why did you have to go?
We all miss you so much,
I'm sure your heart still glows.

You left so suddenly,
To soon for all of us.
Never again will we hug,
In family trust.

You were so young,
And still so healthy.
God had other plans,
A prayer is now said, silently.

I can't express my sorrow,
Or anyone else's, for that matter.
In your death we will mourn,
Even years after.

If only you could be here,
To come back to stay,
'Tanner, we love you! '
Everyone would say.

Irreversible is death,
An unfortunate truth.
You went to heaven,
Still in your youth.

    I am so sorry for your loss. The pain and sorrow you feel without your brother is unimaginable. I can tell you from my own personal experience that it doesn't get any easier or better, but with time you and your family will find a way to live without your brother, as hard as that may seem to do mose days. Writing your poems is a way to grieve your loss and try to heal (a wound that will never fully be healed) . Keep it up, because like Kyle I think you have a talent. I truly believe our friends and family are gifts to us, and perhaps the gift of your brother Tannner, is the poetry he inspires you to write. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
